POETRY IN MOTION: The McLaren P1 GTR is perhaps one of the best, rawest track machines ever made. Image: YouTube


From the AMG GT S to the A45 AMG, Mercedes-Benz lined up all of its AMG models for one insanely cool photo session!

Cape Town - The Wheels24 team is exposed to lots of videos on a daily basis and selecting ones that are suitable for our audience is a tedious mission.

Not because it is difficult, but because the content needs to 1) be suitable and 2) not offend any of our readers.

Which brings us to this week's selection. And yes, it is another stellar list of brilliantly awe-inspiring clips.

Did you know that BMW made an action movie and called it 'The Escape'? No? Well, starring a number of A-list Hollywood stars and written/directed by South Africa's very own Neill Blomkamp, the 13min clip is packed with action from the moment it starts right through to the end.

And McLaren's P1 is given the GT-R treatment and is taken around the track for a session that will have you drooling and swooning over the car's imposing presence on the track.

In Russia a huge crash between an Infiniti and a BMW took place after the aforementioned's driver sped on an icy road and couldn't stop his vehicle in time. Ever see a car aquaplane on ice?

But the title of best video of the week has to go to the biker who allowed a little boy to start his motorbike. The kid's father was ecstatic!

Without any further delays, here are our top videos!
